A Decision Beyond Life and Death: Novel Examines Effects of Controversial Procedure on Patients, Their Families and Doctors
Date:4/10/2009

WATERLOO, Iowa, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- "ETOP: Elective Termination of Pregnancy" (published by AuthorHouse) by Stephen L. Styron is a novel exploring the difficulties that some women and their families face when choosing to terminate a pregnancy.

At County Memorial Hospital, a massive inner-city medical complex, doctors work tirelessly to provide care for an underprivileged patient population. Dr. David Dinsmore, a confident, likable and incredibly good-looking OB/GYN is one of those doctors -- arousing the curiosity of young, aggressive and equally good-looking Tribune reporter Constance Morrison.

Over time, Dinsmore's unconventional lifestyle and air of mystery makes him even more interesting to Morrison, but Morrison becomes increasingly more suspicious of the too-good-to-be-true doctor. When Morrison uncovers a connection between Dinsmore and the equally mysterious DCM Foundation, these discoveries compel her to take extreme measures to unveil the truth.

Diving headlong into her investigation, Morrison's initial distrust of Dinsmore develops into genuine love. A clash with an extremist anti-abortion group leads to a climax that will have readers examining their own views on abortion, as well as the views of those seeking to stop the practice at any cost.

Drawing on experiences from his own medical career, Styron intertwines the personal and sometimes tragic stories of people who, with support or pressure from their partner, face the life-or-death reality of early termination. Revealing the decisions that both doctors and patients face, ETOP touches on religious, social and political facets of the pro-choice/pro-life debate and informs readers on how a simple outpatient procedure can lead to extreme actions and viewpoints that develop on the far end of the spectrum. Readers interested in the day-to-day operations of a busy medical center will see the challenges these medical professionals face, as well as the personal rewards that come from a dedication to healing.

About the Author: Stephen L. Styron is a private practice OB/GYN and U.S. Army Reservist. Upon graduation from the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine, Styron spent 10 years as an active duty physician in the U.S. Army. Styron is a father of four and has been married for 24 years.
